Is this movie a copy?
I recently followed a link to www.votergate.tv and watched their documentary on the issues with the various electronic voting machines used during recent elections. I noticed that they said to make sure that you always go to www.votergate.tv, and that "There is even one group using our name and misappropriated footage from our film." Curious, I did a quick check of domains using the Votergate name and finally reached votergate.org, a seemingly much darker site. I watched some of the movie that THEY had, and it seemed very similar in theme and message, though with perhaps slightly lower production values. It had a LOT of the same footage
The issue remains, however. I think this movie may be a duplicate. I would encourage people to check http://www.archive.org/movies/details-db.php?collection=election_2004&collectionid=VotergateTheMovie for what I believe is a much better version. That said, it may just be coincidence that they chose the same name.
